trillion to our dead and that leads us to next issue and that is what to do about this debt in our deficit and what to do about a budget. lou: use it on the super committee. >> yes,use it on the super committee. >> yes, i do, but i am an ally and a lieutenant of paul ryan. i'm trying to help him as much as possible. lou: why would congressman paul ryan get involved in integration an trying to rewrite the tax code in such a short timeframe and as i was talking with jon barrasso yesterday, the leadership priorities are to preserve sequester and ensure that no taxes are raised here. why expand again -- it's one of those baffling things to me that the republican party always seems to be inclined to turn potential political victories in moments of achievement into failure and i just don't understand it. >> he is focused on this budget negotiation and i don't think there'll be there will be a grand bargain. we are focused on not only keeping victories like this in place but adding to them as well and tax reform would be a victory that would help grow the economy and help alleviate the deficits.
too much. about two-thirds said raising taxes to cut the deficit was a nonstarter. and compared to obamacare, which more voters actually said they wanted to repeal, these levels of support are striking. so if our friends on the other side want to keep trying to claim an electoral mandate for maintaining obamacare contradicted by the facts as that phaoeurbgs while using their own logic we had to call the mandate for reducing the size of government a super mandate. that's why their new plan to undo the cuts the president campaigned on and increase the debt is so outrageous. we hear that the senior senator from new york will soon announce a proposal to give the permanent -- give the president permanent power to borrow more. in other words, he wants to extend the debt ceiling permanently by going around congress. let me repeat that. the so-called schumer-obama plan is a plan to permanently hand the president a credit card without spending limits and without lifting a finger to address the national debt. truly outrageous, especially when you consider that our debt is now $17 trillion
bg people, and their needso, we need to also talk about our debt and deficit, getting that straightened out will cause the economy to go. lou: if you and your caucus think have you the power as majority in house of representatives against a party that holes the presidency, and the senate, and are willing to risk shutting down this government against, i think that you will be making the biggest mistake imaginable. >> i'm not talking about closing down the government, i'm talking about. lou: somebody needs to say that in your roll, say we're not going to shut the government down we're not good-bye to be going to be irrational we're not going to slam some grand policy. >> lou, i'm the one that saying it i'm tel tell you you right nw we're working to find common ground with our democrats, i think saw that you last week with the first meeting we're finding ways that we can work together, we have to govern, we can't just keep stalemating and closing the government down, we have to govern. lou: god bless you for saying that. >> that is what we're intending to do, not grand ba
spying. does that raise concerns with you? from attentionr deficit disorder. i do not use a computer. i suffer from thyroid cancer. with this comes down the pike, i am not going to be ever be treated for because i have a pre-existing problem. on the nsa issue, i want to show you headlines from the front pages of the newspapers. spying york times -- known at top levels. headlines are that the white house did know about the spine. the wall street journal follow- up says that in the testimony yesterday we heard keith europeanssay the shared spy data with the united states. millions of phone records at the center of a firestorm in europe over spine by the national security agency or secretly supplied to the u.s. by european intelligence services, not the nsa. that is the headline in the washington post. nsa chief says the phone allegations are false. nato allies correct -- collected records and share them with the united states. the nsa director yesterday in that testimony saying that the allies were working with the nsa and some of that information was collected by the nsa itself. if you m
is godly or we're going the wrong way which is ungodly. i mean, is this about budget deficits? is this about something you put your fingers on like mathematics? or something else he's talking about here? i think he's talking apocalyptics. i see it. your thoughts. >> i do too. and, you know, it's working for him. people say, well, this strategy was a failure. sure, it was a failure. it was a failure for republicans nationally. it was a failure for republicans in the congress. but was it a failure for ted cruz? he's got bigger fund raising lists as a result of what he did. he's got converts that will go to the wall for him in iowa and states like that. was it a failure from his perspective? maybe not. >> so it's all about -- governor, is it all about getting the right wing rail, get that rail position hardest right you can get and make sure rand paul or nobody else gets there. as long as you hold to that position, hardest right candidate, you're going to get a huge chunk of votes. is that the thinking? >> absolutely. i think ted cruz is motivated totally selfishly in this. he's
our deficit by more than half. but we have more work to do. we need to grow and create more good jobs faster. that is my driving focus, and i will go anywhere and do anything to make it happen. that has to be washington's driving focus as well. i know what you often hear out of washington can sadly charley brown's teacher, a jumble of unfocused noise out of touch with the things you care about. today i want to cut through that noise and talk plainly about what we should do right now to keep growing this economy and creating new jobs. it begins by ending what has done more than anything else to undermine our economy over the past few years, the constant cycle of manufactured crises and self-inflicted wounds. i was glad to hear the republican leaders in the senate say they will not pursue and other government shutdown or threaten another default on our debt. we should not be injuring ourselves every few months. we should be investing in ourselves. one way to do that is through the budget congress starts working on this week. budgets can be a boring topic, especially on a weekend, but th
grow the economy and deficits are falling fast on his watch. >> remember our deficits are getting smaller, not bigger. on my watch they are falling at the fastest pace in 60 years so that gives us room to fix our long-term debt problems without sticking sticking it to young people or undermining our bedrock retirement and health security programs or cutting basic research that helps us grow. >> house and senate budget negotiators hope to strike a deal that would avert a new round of automatic cuts set to hit the pentagon and domestic programs. >> a concord food bank is look to add security after thieves target add building that's under construction. police say someone stole $18,000 in building supplies and tools from the new monument crisis center on market street tuesday night. the project's foreman said workers are forced to share tools which could delay the scheduled opening set for late december. >> it was heartbreaking. we come into work and the doors are open. all of my personal stuff was gone, like literally every tool i owned was gone. you don't think you are going to get
did not have a deficit problem the -- but that .e had a revenue problem on the floor yesterday he said the american people want to pay more taxes. i am sorry, sir, i do not want to pay more taxes, i barely make it as it is. in youw is your last day guys are taking a vacation again for another 10 days and i would like to know why, when there are so many things that have to be done in congress? guest: well, there is a schedule. as you know, we were supposed to be off two weeks ago when we had the travesty of trying to get the government act opening and. when people say vacation, i know i will be in my district working every day. most congressmen will be doing the same thing, regardless of which side of the aisle. this is not a vacation. people think that if we are not in washington we do not do anything. people have to speak for themselves, i can assure you that is not my cup of tea. your second question about harry reid, there is a problem in terms of revenue. there is a problem that we have in the deficit area the commitment to his cut the deficit in half, which is very good, we are go
of women, it is projected that comprehensive immigration reform will reduce the deficit by $1 trillion over 10 years. i know that my neighbors care about women's rights and care about keeping families together. that's why we need to pass comprehensive immigration reform now. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back the balance of her time. for what purpose does the gentlewoman from florida rise? ms. ros-lehtinen: i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentlewoman is recognized for one minute. ms. ros-lehtinen: thank you, madam speaker. i'm pleased to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the congressional hispanic leadership institute known as chili. through his vision and leadership, former congressman lincoln diaz-balart, has guided chli while preparing young hispanics to become the leaders of tomorrow. chli's programs and initiatives focus on a wide variety of issues, from public service to commerce and technology. this month i spoke at chli's trade, an interna
the deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars. then there's this little sugar blum, that it will wreck the economy. that's a hard one to make when the stock market hit an all-time high. thank you congressman. i'm beginning to fall in love with everybody in new jersey. tell me about the tenor of the discussion today. >> it was all scare tactics and the gop trying to sabotage the affordable care act. the first thing was this idea that you mentioned at first about the insurance companies taking away your plan. this is private insurance in a competitive market. so the insurers that are canceling these individual policies are doing so because they are not going to be able to sell them. if you have a skeletal plan that has very vifew benefits and cosa lot and somebody else is on the exchange that has better benefits and costs less, you're not going to be able to sell your insurance. so they're notifying people that they're not selling the lousy insurance at a high price. people say i want to keep my plan. why in the world would you want to keep a lousy plan that's going to cost you more. ant
. joblessness not deficits is the greatest crisis. that doesn't seem to be part of the beltway discussion except for those that don't have power. the tea party, i think you're right, has lost a lot of its power, which is the beginning of possibility. >> you wanted to get in on that last point about revenue versus entitlement programs, social safety net, earned benefit programs, whatever, however you want to characterize them. i'll let you go ahead. >> we have to keep in mind, it matters not at all what tom cole, john boehner says, mitch mcconnell says, because nobody listen toss them. i don't care if tom cole is moderate or whatever he is, or john boehner, like he says, we're not going to shut down the government. the pocket of conservatives running the house republican conference don't listen to what their leadership says. tom cole could want to raise tax toss 50% and that doesn't really make a difference. >> you're saying no lessons have been learned since the shutdown. the orientation of power has shifted even further toward the right towards the tea party. >> i think it has. i think some peo
% say the u.s. needs a deficit plan now. move along here. that came down in the summertime. only 40% say, 52% say, you know what, we can take our time on this. now look again, it's come back up, more than half saying we need to have a deficit plan now. i don't know if that goes along with the debate in washington right now or if there's legitimately more concern on wall street over the deficit. but it's something we have to watch. this is where this current state of anxiety is on wall street with the nation's debt issue. let's see what they say about this. diane suanne says brinksmanship has cost us in ways we will not know for years to come economically and geopolitically. certainly on wall street they're asking for a little more certainty out of the fiscal debate. becky, read all about this online, coming up at 10:00, we're going to talk about what the expectations are for the markets from these experts. and later in the day, what they think about janet yellen, hint hint, here comes the dove. back to you. >> only one "s" in brinksmanship. >> what's that? >> was there are more
with their budget deficits, as well. any issues with that coming in the short to mead why term? >> that would be completely a policy decision. >> this is a stake where you have an enormous amount of capital tied up and you're saying you don't control the dividend stream at all. >> a year ago, people were saying you don't get any dividends. this quarter we received a 465 million testify depend. it went up last quarter to 8 million this quarter. >> talking about dividends, 9.5 cents a shear, up from 9 cents a share. why have you been upping the dividend and increasing or continuing the share back bye program? >> we raised the dividend today, announced a 576% increase in the dividend. i think our shareholders have been very, very patient with bp and i think it's time for us to do not only keep a progressive dividend policy, and we will continue to review it and in addition we announced td we would sell another $10 billion of assets between now and 2015 and make some of those proceeds available for additional shareholder buyback. >> we mentioned the same issues, russia and mccondo. how do our vie
-dollar deficit question mark right now. is that coming out of medicare? no this is totally understandable. 30 years ago healthcare law $13 trillion, greta. we can't afford it. >> i truly believe we have got to get medical care to everybody, but i am trying to figure out where the money is coming from. that's my concern about it we will see what happens to your bill. get more democratic support beside mary landrieu. >> i'm optimistic that we can pass this thing and on to promise that president obama made to million of americans. >> packers will win this weekend, right. >> absolutely. >> kathleen sebelius testifying she was clearly wrong to give it the green light. upton heading up today's hearing. is he here next. can you hash it out with us was secretary sebelius right to take the blame for the rollout or is the secretary responsible. tweet us using #greta. it was a . it was a . and t the kind of attention wanted. so i had a serus talk with my dermatologt about my treatment options. this time, she prescribed humira-adalimumab. humira helps tclear the surface of my skin by actuallrking inside
bipartisan transportation legislation. they went into this fall with a deficit, and then occurred the shutdown. and the shutdown has really turned off virginia voters. they see that as a dysfunctional congress, they see it as an example of that extremism. they don't like it. many of us were affected by it, because virginia is very much tied to the federal government in terms of investment defense spending and technology investment. and i think the republicans are going to pay a very heavy price for that next tuesday. >> you know, we have -- you talk about sort of the gender gap there. you have the latest poll, "washington post"/abc news has mcauliffe winning by 24 points among women. i think back to four years ago, mcauliffe, his national reputation, he was a bungler. sort of a d.c. big pun guy. he ran four years ago in virginia, got trounced in the democratic primary. you know, i hear there's a writer for "new york" magazine who said at the start of this campaign this year that terry mcauliffe is the democrat that democrats have been dreaming of voting against. i just look at thi
with the dramatic reduction in the federal deficit. >> quite dramatic. it's 680 million, the first time it's been under a trillion in five years. if you look at this chart, you'll see it's less than half it was in 2009. why? well, a pull back in stimulus packages. of course sequestration, across the board budget cuts. and taxes on the top 1%. and also if you go back to 2008 and that housing crisis, fanny and freddie mac and the government bailout have started to pay the government back. that's reflected in the figure. >> auto sales. how did they fair last month given the government shutdown. >> it did have an effect. the back half was quite successful. particularly with trucks. you see one truck ad after another. full 60 seconds, very brand specific. the average transaction price for a full size truck is $39,000. they are more fuel efficient, quite luxurious. and brand advertising. that's important. because it's not just is targeting people purchasing trucks but a new generation of young boys. >> going bananas. >> if you look at the list, number one is sandwiches. that's interesting. it's number
said it's not helping grow the economy. >> remember, our deficits are getting smaller, not bigger. on my watch they are falling at the fastest pace in 60 years so that gives us room to fix our long-term debt problems without sticking it to young people or undermining our bedrock retirement and health security programs or cutting basic research that helps us grow. >> house and senate budget negotiators hope to strike a deal that would avert a new round of automatic cuts set to hit the pentagon and domestic programs. >> ahead on the abc7 saturday morning news, the east bay city installing cameras everywhere to keep track of people coming and going. and a live look outside right now from our sutro cam. it's going to be 66 degrees in san francisco today. maybe rain next week. lisa argen will ha therryobi is number one.ons we have over fifty products that work off one 18 volt battery. plus, ryobi offers more value and selection than anyone. and now, there's new lithium and lithium plus, our most powerful and longest lasting batteries ever. so you can knock out that to-do list, all befo
an example i love the quote from niles ferguson referring to the president saying, the deficit is declining and now ferguson says, yeah, from superenormous, to really, really gigantic. i love the quote. but, is that enough? do i have to say, as i heard or as i read on an ap story. about ferguson. or as i heard when he was on with george stephanopoulos. i mean there's sort of a certain degree when we're going to say, is that nitpicking? is referring to the person enough or do i have to refer to the original source? in an academic paper, even if you paraphrase something, don't even use the same words, has to be sourced. when i wrote scientific papers, i sometimes had statements with eight footnotes for a sentence. if it's required i'll do it. but i think i'm being unfairly targeted by a bunch of hacks and haters. >> okay, that's an extensive answer. thank you, rand paul. >>> up next -- it's the roundtable turn. matthew dowd, van jones, jon than karl and peggy noonan. on. the president's second-term slump. >>> and a look at this tuesday's election, what clues do they have for 2016 and midterms
them to the deficit and easing the sequester. there's a deal to be made if both sides will approach it with willingness to engage in give and take. >> i'm curious how optimisticing that lawmakers will do the same because you're saying give and take, both sides have to give a little. >> well, remember, first of all, let's start with the things we agree on. we agree with a lot of the president's entitlement reforms. we don't think we should have to pay for areas we agree by doing things like raising taxes. we don't expect the democrats to embrace the ryan plan on medicare or the block grant medicaid to the states. so they've got some lines in the sand on their side. i respect that. but there's enough room in the middle to actually get something done, and frankly, if not, you know, the sequester levels of spending are already written into the law. and we can certainly enact those. but again, we think there's better ways to save money and still have money to do some of the things the president's talking about doing. infrastructure development and certainly easing some of the domestic sp
since then? i wouldn't blame cuchinelli's deficit in the polls entirely on governor mcdonnell. but if you look about the time that mcdonnell's legal problems, ethical problems came to a head, that's when the momentum shifted in this race. before last spring, early summer, you know, cuchinelli was ahead in some polls, mcauliffe was ahead in some polls. it was a bit of a mix. since mid july, we now have 35 cob second tif polls showing mcauliffe ahead. some by one or two, some by 10, 11, 12. but 35 in a row, something happened. i think part of it was governor mcdonald, i think part of it is that cuchinelli is perceived to be more to the right than mcauliffe is to the left. i think you have a lot of voters who don't like terry mcauliffe but did like cuchinelli more. >> nationwide on xm channel 120. we welcome your listenership as well. in the baltimore-washington area. wcstfm 91 on the dial. too much for virginia voters in his assessment, charlie cook, is that the election was decided on may 18. that's the day that commonwealth republican voters had a chance to decide betwe
a ballooning -- i mean, the political conversation, that's legitimate, is about the deficit, right? and about what it means to be having a program that has ballooned as large as s.n.a.p. but s.n.a.p.'s ballooned because people are out of work and have been out of work at record numbers for over a year. so -- but one of the things that the congressional budget office has said is that number one, this is not our fiscal problem, because by 2019, without congress doing anything, by 2019, it's going to shrink and it's going to be at 1995 numbers in terms of gross domestic product. so it's not our economic problem, and for every dollar we spend on a food stamp to feed someone who is hungry, we get $1.70 in economic activity. >> yep. >> that's bang for the buck, as well as just right. >> i just don't want to miss that, right? that when -- that what we do is we create elasticity. and right, republicans are supposed to get this, right? you guys are supposed to be the ones who get the numbers of this. that we create elasticity in the budgets of people living at the margins, right? so once you provide a
the economy, creating between half a million and a million jobs, reduces the deficit by over $00 billion, bolsters job creation an strengthens the viability of social security and medicare. what's not to like? let's restore the rule of law to our country. let's improve our security. and let's unite families in human terms to -- yibet families. in human terms the cost of inaction is having a heavy toll. over 100,000 deportations have taken place since the senate passed imfration last june, including thousands who are noncriminals who would have benefited from immigration reform but instead became a cost to the taxpayers to the tune of more than $200,000 each to deport. take a few examples of my district -- from my district of people that immigration reform will help today. diana and cathia are two young women who are high school students brought here from mexico as young children by their parents. they're excellent students, both straight a students, want to go to college. kcathia wans to go toed me cool school, diana wants to study cinematography. both are applicants to the doca program.
deficits and debts. that's a difficult perspective. we need to recognize these spending issues are important. we need to be on a balanced budget. we need to be focused on what's going to give a sound, fiscal opportunity for this country. >> but you have to look at issues as well. you cannot ignore the problems being imposed on families on a daily basis with the cuts to the food stamp program. look at your state alone in north carolina. 1.7 million americans rely on these s.n.a.p. benefits. economists estimate every food stamp dollar turns around and brings in $1.70 in terms of impacting the local economy, which means a total economic loss to your state of about $280 million in the coming year, money that's no longer going out to farmers or grocers or others. what's your reaction to that? >> if it was that good, we would have a robust economy. as it is right now, our economic growth is about 1.8%. unemployment is about 7.5%. we have about 170,000 new jobs per month. that is very slow growth. you know, back in the '80s when reagan cut the tax obligation, cut the regulation, we di
to health insurance because they will not be discriminated against. they said it would explode the deficit. all the reputable organizations, like the congressional budget office, have told us that it will save us $100 billion over 10 years. we have had a litany of objections from the republicans about the affordable care act, which have driven them to such a frenzy that they even close to the government. now we have you before the committee and you are being asked about the website. let me pursue this question about individuals who have gotten notices that they will have their individual insurance policies canceled. they will be able to get another plan what they? >> continuous coverage as part of the law. it is the law. that was not the case in the past. >> we will end the worst abuses of the insurance industry. we will create consumer protections in the marketplace that they will be able to buy a policy even if they have been sick in the past. women will not be charged more than men. insurance companies will not be able to deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions. they will not be
